The 26th Fair will have 52 exhibitors in the main galleries at the Royal Academy and will have dealers, print workshops and publishers from America, France, Germany and Ireland as well as Britain.
Works on sale range from as little as £100 to over £100,000, from etchings by Canaletto and engravings by Hogarth, to the works of established contemporary artists such as Peter Blake and David Hockney. For the first time in its history the Fair is delighted to have as an exhibitor the Royal Academy Schools, who will showcase work by current and past printmakers. The latest work from the print department at the Royal Academy Schools and the Royal College of Art offers an opportunity to buy work by emerging artists.
The Fair has organised an exciting programme of talks, demonstrations and children’s workshops, made possible by the generous support of Towry Wealth Advisers.
